Developer website: Calibrated Software

Calibrated{Q} MXF Import... Native Importing and Playback of P2 (DVCProHD/DV50/DV25), XDCAM DV25 and select OP1a DV-based MXF Files within Final Cut Pro and QuickTime. Finally you can enjoy the freedom of native editing in Final Cut Pro without the need for Logging and Encoding, or creating QuickTime Reference Movies for your MXF Files.

Calibrated Software's unique solution successfully joins the separate video and audio P2 MXF files so that Final Cut Pro sees them all as ONE file - complete with TimeCode and Reel Name. PullDown can also be removed or added instantly for select frame rates.
